Travel Etiquette Do's and Don'ts: Damaged Hotel Room

Ben Wiseman

What to Do When You’ve Accidentally Damaged Your Hotel Room

Do...

…assess the mess. One that only requires cleanup costs less than one that calls for replacing broken furniture and fixtures.

…fess up. The hotel will find out regardless—and you’ll want to be there to plead your case.

Don’t...

…fret if the damage is small and unintentional. Hotels will often let you go without penalty.

…assume you can walk away scot-free. If the damage is major, you could be responsible for repairs and lost revenue.
